Low Carb Hollandaise Sauce

Why is it called Hollandaise?

It’s a rich sauce made with butter, egg yolks, and lemon juice or vinegar. The name Hollandaise originated in the year 1841, from a French sauce called hollandaise or in other words, “Dutch sauce,” from Holland. Which basically means, it’s Dutch but the French say so… got it.

But it’s also thought that La Varenne should be credited with bringing “sauces out of the Middle Ages” and may have invented hollandaise sauce. Who knows?
